have an oppurtunity to buy a 429 motor from a mid 60's? 4 door lincoln that has one of the hoods that lift up from the back. are those motors worth anything? it is stock down to the carb tag and has been sitting for a while. sort of curious.
thanks

the 429 didn't come out until like 1968.

Please use caution here.....it may be the Lincoln engine family that is NOT of the 385 Ford family and therefor will fit Nothing in Fords lineup. First 385 series engine in a Lincoln I have ever heard of was in a Mark 3 in 1968 and had a name plate on the radiator support that introduced the 460 and its high HP ouput. 460cid 4v, 365 hp, 500 lb/ft torque.

It is a discussion on the 430cid engine that was common in the mid 60s lincolns. I just did a little research on the "NET" using DOGPILE.COM and all sorts of stuff popped up ;). John

Make sure it's not a 462. These were common IIRC in '65-67. I believe these are like the Merc blocks, with the block deck faced at an angle, and heads with small flat chambers.

ford NEVER put a 429 in ANY lincoln. that being said they DID put 460's in all lincolns in 68 and 69 so unless the engine has been swapped into that lincoln then its not a 385 series "LIMA" its probably a 462 ME engine which has little performance value and almost NO parts available for it.
